iPhone apps run background checks on your date
In a move that is sure to make playboys everywhere nervous, Internet company PeopleFinders
has created two iPhone applications that let users perform background checks on their potential dates.
The apps, known as "Stud or Dud?" and "Are They Really Single?", utilize data culled from countless public records to give users a more complete picture of whom they're going out with. PeopleFinders President and COO Bryce Lane says his company collects data from "thousands of sources" across the country from "federal governments to the very smallest city governments." He says the company then uses algorithms to sort through the data and make comprehensive files that will give users a reliable picture of who the person is.
From there, the data is placed in PeopleFinders' database and is put up for sale. While both of the applications the company debuted today cost a mere $0.99 to download, users can only access records by either paying $9.95 per record or by paying an annual subscription fee of $24.95. In the case of "Stud or Dud?" users have the option of using simply by a person's first and last name, by their age and hometown, or by their phone number. From there, the program gives you a list of potential matches to choose from.
Hah! An app for everything! Sad that things like this are even needed, but I guess you can't be too careful these days.

Next we'll have apps that scan fingerprints or DNA samples to check criminal history or for STD's.
If I had a daughter I would def make her buy an app that checked for criminal records lol, that would be awesome.

This could be disturbing . .
In most states you can check criminal history all you want. Visit your state government's website. It is public record.
